Writing Update - August 2016

The Chasm - 110,000 words, 53 chapters, 6 months. First draft done.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, The Chasm is done! :D I've tripled my daily word quota on Friday just to finish it before the weekend. I'll work on the second and third draft in September, and then my editor will get her hands on it in October. Until then, stay tuned for a cover reveal on Thursday, September 1st, including the book description and the pre-order link. The newsletter subscribers will also receive an excerpt and an option to request an ARC.

Next on my writing agenda are three more installments of Law and Crucible Saga. The plan is to have them out for Christmas along with a Broken People short story. I don't know if it's entirely doable since these aren't only short stories but enter well into novella territory and I only have the first one plotted in detail so far, but I do know what's supposed to happen in the other two as well. If they're not ready by the end of December, they will definitely be released in January. I know you were hoping for the final novel in the Broken People series to be out this year, and so was I, but The Chasm took double the time assigned for writing it and delayed my plans.

For now, let's all get excited about The Chasm. I know I am! :)
